Darren Criss (Blaine) and actor Daniel Radcliffe have nearly crossed paths more than once in recent years, but on July 20 we practically imploded from excitement after Darren shared an Instagram photo of him and Daniel hanging out together. Desperate for more info? Read on to find out what these two Harry Potters were up to!

As most of you know, Darren was first introduced to us via A Very Potter Musical, the Harry Potter spoof he starred in while studying at the University of Michigan. A Very Potter Musical eventually went viral online, and Darren’s portrayal of Harry helped him land the role of Blaine on Glee. We don’t know if Daniel ever saw AVPM, but from the moment we watched Darren sing “Goin’ Back to Hogwarts,” we knew there would be two HPs vying for our affection.


In January 2012 Darren and Daniel crossed paths again when the Glee star replaced the Brit in the Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Both actors took on the lead role of J. Pierrepont Finch.

Somewhere along the line these fellas must have become pretty good friends because, like we said above, Darren showed Daniel some support on closing night of his most recent Broadway effort. “Congratulations to the totally awesome Daniel Radcliffe on the closing of The Cripple of Inishmaan today. Bravo to another great Broadway run!” Darren captioned an Instagram snap featuring our two beloved Harrys.
